Challenge: Freedom II (Advanced Editing II)
Camera: Canon PowerShot G5
Location: A local park
Date: Jul 11, 2004
Aperture: F/7,1
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/500 sec
Galleries: Emotive, Persuasive
Date Uploaded: Jul 11, 2004

This was taken after my sweetie and I decided to explore the massive play structure at a nearby park. It looks as if it was some kind of stone building previously; it's actually rather creepy. Anyway, there were some little window-y tunnels in one of the stone walls, and I thought they might make for some rather interesting pictures; I'm very pleased with how this one turned out, though I'm unsure how it'll do in this challenge.

Editing: Cropping, resizing, dodging and burning, hue/saturation, levels, curves, sharpening, and border. I think that's all.

9... I think the only thing keeping me from giving tyhis a 10 is the ring... I feel like it shouldn't be there.

It is terrifis how you got detail in both the bright hand and the dark concrete. I like the absolute blackness of the hole, and the added touch of the ring on the hand. This picture tells a interesting story - creeoy but intriguing. 9

I love this. It is initially humorous, but then you start wondering about the escape, and it becomes rather foreboding. Great work!!

manipulation is obvious

A tad contrived, and the fingers are scary= you better get your thumbnail checked. But the composition is decent with the big hole.

well done Heida?
would have liked to see a little bit more arm

This is a really creepy shot. I think you lose something with such a nicely manicured hand in this situation. I'd remove the ring, get the hand nice and dirty, and contort the fingers a little to really show the struggle. Maybe B&W too. Still, a very creative approach! 7

What an intriguing image. Very unusual, lots of texture and interest, makes me wonder where she's coming from, how she got there etc. 8

You have a well designed image with loads of mystery. I wonder how it would look with really red fingernails. The white line in the boder draws too much attention.

Heida? This is a great photo. Great lighting and tones. The only thing i would change is to leave a little more room on the right after the fingers (probablly about the amount that would be there if you added a border on top of the photo). 10

Very, very nice. Nearly perfect. It's funny how people's photographic styles are shining through on DPC. I'm starting to associate them with photographers ;)
